First look at the designs from Greyfriars Tartan Fashion Show

First look at the designs from Greyfriars Tartan Fashion Show

The criss-crossed horizontal and vertical bands of the tartan pattern is a style synonymous with Scotland.

“Discover, connect and re-imagine tartan”

The Greyfriars Tartan design competition set out to challenge the traditional look asking fashion designers to use Greyfriars tartan to create a garment with the fabric.

The tartan was created in 2011 by Paul Moffat, a member of the Grassmarket Community Project.

The social enterprise works with vulnerable locals to develop new skills, self confidence and become more employable.

The Greyfriars Tartan Design competition was held last month with designers from around the world, as well as local talent, submitting their style visions.

Out of the 26 entrants, 13 finalists have been picked to bring their creations to life on the catwalk this Thursday during Edinburgh Fashion Week.

Around 24 outfits will be presented to three fashion show judges who will choose three winning pieces.

“We are so proud of our achievements with Greyfriars tartan, both raising funds and teaching skills to our members," Katerina Faulds at Grassmarket Community Project, said.

"The fashion show will be a celebration of this, as well as a chance to re-consider perceptions of tartan as a whole.

“This fashion show is our first major step towards working with fashion designers from all over the world, allowing us to expand Scottish social enterprise into global export markets. We’re so excited to see the competition results on the night.”
